So, someone gives you $1 million and says you have to use it to buy a property. It can be anywhere in the world and it can be any kind of property.
What can $1 million buy you around the world? The Richest took us on a tour to find out.
In New York, you’d be able to get a one-bedroom apartment in the West Village. It will probably be in a very high apartment block and the apartment itself will be tiny, but if you’re in the city that never sleeps, you probably won’t be spending much time there anyway.
Thinking of moving to the city of lights? In Paris, you will be able to get a studio apartment that’s just over 60 square metres. You’re really paying for the location as Parisian apartments are small, but you’d be able to walk to the biggest landmarks in the world.
In Dubai you could buy an apartment in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. A 167 square metre apartment consisting of two bedrooms and two bathrooms will not only buy you prime real estate property, but also incredible views over both the ocean and the desert.
If you want to go big with island living, Bali is the place to be. Because the US dollar goes a long way on this stunning Indonesian island, you can get a massive three-bedroom villa with a swimming pool. Best of all? It’s located close to a world-famous surfing spot and it comes fully furnished.
